Thousands, a Seattle based acoustic duo, released their debut album, The Sound of Everything, in April and along with a string of East Coast performances will be playing at the Crocodile Friday, April 29th. You can see what The Stranger and The Seattle Weekly said on Thousands PR page, and after a very quick listen to the CD, I’m inclined to agree with the Simon and Garfunkel comparison. Perhaps a male folk duo can’t escape such comparisons though. The song that struck me most was the title track. It’s more a droning number very heavy in reverb and very light on the guitar. It speaks to a willingness of the duo to explore different directions. Hopefully they’ll explore some of those directions in the live setting.
